ENGL 335 - Searching for Home in South Asian Literatures: Gender, Nation, Narration
An exploration of what South Asia is and how it has been described/defined using key literary texts and theoretical arguments from writers who both reside inside and outside the region. Students critically examine the different representations of South Asia from the colonial period to the present moment. The course begins by examining classical texts that were revived during British colonialism, moves to exploring colonial representations of countries in the region, and concludes by discussing contemporary postcolonial texts. The gendered nature of colonial, postcolonial, and global processes is an important part of this course.
